Educational research makes a powerful contribution to global challenges in society and culture. The sophisticated use of research methodologies is resulting in exciting new contributions to knowledge. The British Educational Research Association and SAGE Publishing have brought together some of the world’s leading education researchers to present on their research and its methodology. The conference is particularly aimed at Early Career Researchers (ECRs) and postgraduate research students, who are literally and metaphorically ‘The Next Generation of Educational Research’. Arising from a unique new endeavour for BERA (The BERA SAGE Handbook of Educational Research) this conference aims to build new futures in education and research.
